A Charleston C-17 Globemaster III approaches to land June 27 while Staff Sgt. Martin Lilland, 556th RED HORSE Squadron at Hurlburt Field, Florida, and Senior Airman Darrien Anderson, 560th RED HORSE Squadron at Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina, position their lift to hang insulation and panels on a 4,800 square-foot preengineered building building to store RED HORSE construction equipment and gear. Rapid Engineer Deployable, Heavy Operational Repair Squadron, Engineer (RED HORSE) squadrons provide the Air Force with a highly mobile civil engineering capability in support of contingency and special operations worldwide. They are self-sufficient, mobile squadrons that provide heavy construction support such as runway/facility construction, electrical upgrades, and equipment transport when requirements exceed normal base civil engineer capabilities and where Army engineer support is not readily available.
